The Band Camino’s, “Daphne Blue”

“Daphne Blue” feels a little like Warped Tour and a little like a hot day at the beach. The Band CAMINO keep their unique sound, guitar riffs, and borderline punk vocals. Releasing two songs so far in 2018, it’s safe to say there’s more to come this year.

“Blue” leaves imagery in our mind of a woman in black jeans and a t-shirt, gorgeous as ever, twirling on a bicycle or in a vintage shop; someone the lead singer is lusting after. Lead singer, Jeffrey Jordan sings the harsh words, “You shut the door and cut me open, now I’m wishin’ I was colorblind.” The guitars steal the rest of the song as listeners get thrown into a whirlwind romance.

The Band Camino’s “Heaven”

The Band Camino’s 5-track EP feels so good. Waves of nostalgic love and summer happiness wash over every song as one spills flawlessly into the next. Themes of California sunshine transcend throughout, but these Memphis natives know how to keep rock alive.

Opening track, “California” feels like a love letter. “I’ve been home, I’m waitin on ya, drove all the way from California,” repeat over and over making love a sense of urgency. The buildup then breakdown at 4:15 make you wish you were lacing up your Converse for a Warped Tour set.

The band spoke out about their new music on Instagram saying, “Taking feelings and thoughts and turning them into something tangible is a careful task. But we have done our very very best to give you the most honest expression of the band that we are. We hope that these songs are there when you need them forever and always.”

“What I Want” starts off with the words, “Second chances, they don’t bother me.” Lyrics build and build to a chant-heavy chorus reminiscent of one of the band’s main influences, pop/alt band Walk the Moon. While the message is about failing and never getting what you want, the overarching element of “moving on” is prominent. A similar message is shared on the bands lead single, “My Thoughts On You.” Another love letter begging for an ending to turn into another beginning; “and I know this, I fell for your eyes, I just realized, I still need you.” The band has mastered their own sound with glistening guitar melodies and triumphant choruses.
